I know that I haven't reviewed When We Touch yet, which is the novella that introduced us to the new Whiskey Creek Series from Brenda Novak, but I am skipping ahead because I am LOVING this series so much that I wanted to tell all of you about it.  (BTW...When We Touch is FREE, so get started on the series now)

This is a new Small-Town series revolving around a group of friends that remain close years after high school.  Some moved away and come back for visits, and some have made their lives in Whiskey Creek.  When Lightning Strikes features Gail DeMarco, owner of Big Hit PR services in LA, or used to be owner, but after losing her biggest client, Simon O'Neal, hottest male lead in the business, she might have to close her business for good. 

Simon O'Neal has been on a downward spiral since his divorce and not being able to see his son has put him at the edge.  Gail realizes that someone needs to help Simon get his reputation back together and it just so happens to be her.  But with a fake marriage and a real connection, what will happen when Simon begins to get his life together?  Will he find himself truly in love with the one person who stood by him, or will he go back to his foolish ways?  Oh I love a battered, broody hero. 

This book was GREAT!!  I enjoyed the relationship between Gail and Simon and was on the edge of my seat waiting for these two to realize that what they had was true.  A little drama + A lot of sexual tension = A wonderful romance.  I couldn't have asked for more.

It was fun meeting all the secondary characters who we will be meeting along the way.  I had the pleasure of reading the next book, When Snow Falls, and I think I loved that one even more.  Ms. Novak certainly knows how to break into your chest and make you care for these characters...and I agree...Dylan Amos is one AWESOME Hero.  Sorry, you will have to wait, but not too long.

So get When Lightning Strikes, get to know the folks in Whiskey Creek and maybe stay awhile!!

Enjoy and Happy Reading!!
